Apparently, doing cartwheels or backflips doesn’t cut it for the kids anymore. These videos, typically involving teenagers from all over and high-speed trains, can be easily found on YouTube when you type in “train dodging.”
According to English Russia:
“This is needed to be done fast, because if one is appearing before the train too long before and machinist could see him and start breaking, so they run on the rails just before the train so he couldn’t start breaking and fell down on the rails, then the train moves above the person at his maximum speed, just a few inches from his head and back.”
I know this is happening in real life and a variation of “playing chicken” at best, but could this be considered a viral video?
